Summary

Only since Victorian times has it been standard practice for mothers and  fathers to send their babies to sleep alone, away from the parental bed  - often in another room. This book reveals how babies who sleep with  their parents benefit by getting virtually a full night's sleep.;The  author explains the advantages of this radical form of baby care,  including its benefits for breastfeeding mothers, reviews the history of  babies in the bed and, through interviews with parents, explores  attitudes to the idea. The book also contains a fresh perspective on the  tragedy of cot death, as well as practical advice on how to sustain  your sex life, hints on safety in the bed and answers to all the common  objections. Finally, the author deals with the moment when the baby  leaves its parents' bed.

    The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana. A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. It is largely in prose, with many inserted anustubh poetry verses. "Kāma" which is one of the three goals of Hindu life, means sensual or sexual pleasure, and "sūtra" literally means a thread or line that holds things together, and more metaphorically refers to an aphorism (or line, rule, formula), or a collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual. Contrary to popular perception, especially in the western world, Kama sutra is not an exclusive sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life.

    In the first part of this book series, the author, as characteristic of him in his Rational Approach to Ancient Indian Itihāsa-Puraṇas, studies the Aphrodite-Ares (Venus-Mars) Love Affair in Greek and Roman Mythology as found in Ancient Art, Sculpture, Renaissance Paintings, and other depictions. Without going into the technicalities of Art, the author attempts new Alternative Readings viewing them as Commentaries and Coded Messages on Gender Relation. In analyzing Aphrodite-Venus Greek and Roman Mythology, the author frequently refers to Ovid and Vātsyāyana’s (Kāmasūtra) immortal wisdom and also attempts comparative analysis of Sculptures of Khajuraho on same theme - to show the unity of Ancient Wisdom on the Art of Love. This book can be read as an interpretative study of Greek and Roman Myths of Aphrodite/ Venus and Ares/ Mars, and Renaissance paintings on them, as also as a guideline on Love-Sexual Relation, and ‘Modern’ Dating with insights on Female Psychology and Woman Mystery.

    Yoga’s Ancient Wisdom Can Transform Your Work Life 
    Everyone knows that yoga helps reduce stress and increase the body’s flexibility and strength. But the physical aspects barely scratch the surface of yoga’s transformative powers. The poses are only one part of a larger philosophy offering profound insights for confronting the complexities of daily life. Yoga can help you remain centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day—especially those between nine and five. 
    This unprecedented guide shows how practicing the full range of yogic concepts—the traditional “Eight Limbs of Yoga”—leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment and features examples from professions like law enforcement, teaching, banking, filmmaking, medicine, and many more. But beyond that, this book is an invitation to use all of yoga’s teachings to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us. 
    
    “Filled with personal insights and stories that carry yoga into the world of daily decision making.… It is wonderful to see the foundations of practice brought to life in such a confident, sincere, and thoughtful way.”
    —Pandit Rajmani Tuganait, Chairman and spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute
    
    “Maren and Jamie show that yoga is not just about poses—the practice is about creating the stillness of mind that will allow you do the work you were meant to do. Seriously, read this book!”
    —Russell Simmons, cofounder of Def Jam
    
    “The [Showkeirs] bring the deepest teachings of yoga alive by showing exactly how to bring our yoga—and our best selves—into the world.”
    —Judith Lasater, PhD, author of Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times

    I thought I was a basket case. Anxiety and depression consumed me until I took ownership of the part I played in creating my vortex of misery. It was from this space I had the epiphany that anxiety and depression are states; not illnesses. They are simply an SOS signal from within, an alert to re-evaluate your lifestyle, beliefs, values, thinking and the way you view the world. If you are prepared to make a new decision to wake up, step up and own it you too can create a compelling future.

    In his third book Gregor Maehle aims at bringing about a renaissance of pranayama, the yogic school of breathing. For millennia pranayama was considered to be the quintessential yogic limb, yoga's main motor for spiritual evolution. To show pranayama's importance Maehle supports his findings at every turn with hundreds of quotations from yogic scripture. With unprecedented detail the author shows how pranayama is used to connect posture practice to yogic meditation and why it will accelerate your progress in both. Also covered are: - how pranayama creates health and its use in therapeutic application - mental and spiritual benefits of pranayama - the function of prana and the effects of pranayama - effect of pranayama on brain hemisphericity and balance of the nervous system - purpose of breath retentions and their precise technical application - in depth guidelines for the practice of pranayama - illustrations of the major pranayama and kriya techniques - the use of mantra and digital counting during pranayama - the appropriate diet and postures for pranayama - the importance and use of bandhas and kriyas before and during pranayama - how to set free your breathing pattern through exercising breath waves - descriptions of the classical pranayamas such as Nadi Shodhana, Bhastrika, Surya Bhedana with never before seen detail - how pranayama relates to raising Kundalini - a workable order in which techniques are to be learned and put into sequence with other yogic limbs - pranayama as it relates to the stages of life Gregor Maehle is practising and researching all aspects of yoga since 1982. He lived for several years in India studying with a variety of yogic masters and sadhus. He has previously published Ashtanga Yoga Practice and Philosophy and Ashtanga Yoga The Intermediate Series, which have been translated into several languages.
